The American Association for the Advancement of Science invites applications for the 2000-01 AAAS Science Scholars in Higher Education for International Development Program.
Selected Scholars will spend one year at the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Washington, DC, as part of a team to conceptualize, plan, and implement international development activities in which there is collaboration between USAID and the higher education community in the U.S. and abroad.
Scholars must have a minimum of five years experience in international higher education and have a Ph.D. in any physical, biological, or social science, or any field of engineering. The emphasis will be on selecting individuals who have substantial experience in higher education development abroad and have developed education linkages or networks with international higher education institutions. The program begins September 1, 2000, and includes a $80,000 stipend plus allowances for relocation to Washington DC, health insurance, and international travel. Deadline for receipt of applications is March 1, 2000. Finalists will be interviewed on March 30, 2000. U.S. citizenship is required.
